On my first trip to Boston, I spent a good deal of time wandering the waterfront. I particularly liked the charm of Long Wharf. Looking back at the Boston skyline from out on historic Long Wharf provided a great view of the city and the myriad types of architecture that make up the modern waterfront.
From what I’ve read, Long Wharf was once a hub of activity when the shipping trade was Boston’s bread and butter. That’s the reason the Custom House Clock Tower is right at the end of the wharf. This was a center of trade once upon a time. Today it has been revitalized and this historic place is filled with people enjoying views of the Boston harbor.
If you look along the cobbles on the right hand side, you’ll see some almost ghostly people. They aren’t apparitions from Boston’s long past but people who walked along the wharf while I was taking this long exposure of the dusk skies over the city skyline. This long exposure also explains the dynamic feeling of motion to the clouds above. The movements of those clouds were also recorded through sky over the wharf. One of my favorite things about pictures taken as night falls is the contrast between the warm city lights and the dusk blue skies.
Every time I see this dusk print, I want to go back to Boston again. It really takes me back to that beautiful evening on the seaside. Have you enjoyed watching the skies turn to night over the skyline from Long Wharf? Or perhaps you have enjoyed a leisurely walk along the cobblestones seen in this print? I’d love to hear what attracts you to this Boston print!
